This document addresses the protocols required for general protein serology methods for taxonomic identification routinely used in the laboratory. These protocols include: Serology methods routinely used in the laboratory, the validation process, and statistical analysis and interpretation of serology results generated in the laboratory. This document also covers the use of quality controls (positive, negative and comparison samples) and the analysis of results if controls fail. The document explains how differences in expressed proteins can be used to identify animals at family and/or species level using a suite of serology methods.
